[video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic that we can change the tone in washington. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were some bipartisan accomplishments but the rhetoric got very tough. some people here in this town use the politics of personal destruction to advance their agenda. i do not want to sound self- serving, but i have not. i do not think a president should. i was hoping for better tone, and it did not happen. host: as you reflect on george w. bush at the end of his two terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. it is not just about washington. washington is a reflection of a broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. 50 years ago, you had two political parties that were both appe

will be joining us. former special assistant to president george w. bush with us. conservative columnist and culture among our guests tonight. we begin with the very latest on the american killed in the hostage situation in algeria. fox disaster security correspondent jeff griffin with our report. >> in exchange for two american hostages, the kidnappers want to convicted terrorists released from u.s. prison. incarcerated for life for his role in the 1993 world trade center bombing and a pakistan in are a scientist who shot to american soldiers in afghanistan . the state department immediately ruled that out. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> the state department, pentagon, and white house all were quick to call this attack terrorism. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. >> terrorists should be on notice. there will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, north africa, not anywhere. >> the u.s. military sent a c130 and a transport plane to evacuate the wounded, but the algerians are still rejecting any foreign
to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
-- reagan, george h.w. bush and george w. bush, and also a counselor to former vice president dick cheney. good to see you. mary, happy new year. >> happy new year to you. thanks for having me. >> well, you have been through this before, and you have seen the risks, the perils of second terms. looking at it from afar, from outside the beltway, what are the big challenges that you think president obama has to be concerned about? >> every term it has been exacerbating a lot of the president's weaknesses. if he wants to get along, if he wants to make some progress with republicans, he has to get be less self-righteous. that could be played earlier. he keeps presenting these false choices that it's either getting -- you're either political, you want an a from the nra or you want safe school, safe children. if you have an opposite view, an opposing view, you can't get to the table if the president is going to set you up as the demon in every case. he immediate to be less self-refr he shall. he needs to take more responsibility. one thing that's happened here is the statute of limitations has r
about george w. bush, they're shredding the constitution tonight. >> that was a lie when they said it about george w. bush and it's a lie when they're saying it about anthony scalia. what scalia said was it protects america's right to constitutional arms. >> if you listen to the president, you would think that's the view of all of them. >> of course. >>> we'll move onto the debt ceiling with the government on pace to run out of money by mid-february. >> yesterday, the president warned republican leaders raising the nation's borrowing limit was non-negotiable and congress aimed to use it as lever eventuallyiage for deep s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is
under george w. bush -- >> 19 times. they voted 19 times. some $4 trillion they raised the debt ceiling 19 times under bush. without a peep, without a squeal. regular, standard votes. >> bill: no demands. >> no demands at all. >> bill: no unless you do this, we're going to shut it down. just 19 times. and now it is pure politics with barack obama. and i thought the president did a very good job yesterday of calling them out. we played this clip earlier. the republicans have two choice. do the responsible thing and pay our bills or -- >> send this country into a tailspin. it will be on their heads. when you have outside republicans saying you can't play these kinds of games you're going to pay for it politically, at the end of the day, i don't know how many of them are going to be able to. >> bill: ben bernanke from the fed telling congress hey, get serious. get serious. raise the debt ceiling and stop playing games. i don't know igor. got a lot to keep track of. somehow you manage to stay on top of all of it. >> great team over at think progress. >> bill: thinkprogress.org. thank you so
come to this extremist point from what we have heard to president george w. bush resigning? there are a couple of things going on here. they are coming to an end. which is good news for the rest of us. there has been a 30 year drift since reagan to the right in the republican party. reagan when he made those statements didn't have to deal with rush limbaugh. he said something at that point and you also have a natural evolution of special interest groups and it is not just the nra. it is both sides of the abortion debate. it is some of the environmentalists. they take the most extreme position possible in order to raise money from their most devoted ne nat ticks. i know members who resigned in the past year because a lot of the stuff that was coming out from that organization before this election was really vile stuff about the president. and they have gone off the deep end. here is ronald reagan in a 1999 ceremony. >> i want to tell all of you here today something that i'm not sure you know. you do know that i'm a member of the nra. and my position on the right to bear arms
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
george w. bush. he used it on his ranch. that will go for about a million. sales so for, 47 million. enough for the main auction where they're expecting really, really iconic cars to be sold off. it could total $100 million in sales in this auction alone, which is why it makes it the world's biggest. a lot of these cars will be sold and the proceeds will be donated to charity. they're hoping they can hit the $50 million mark for that. it's an incredible event. back to you. >> gregg: there are some real beauties you were showing us. take lots of pictures and send them to us. dominic, thanks very much. >> heather: i'm so jealous. take a picture, bid on one and bring it back. >> gregg: i've been to a car show here in new york city, they are so much fun. there are so many things that you wish you had lots of money to buy them. >> heather: i'd take the '67 red corvette. >> gregg: it was a beauty. >> heather: many people dread when they pass through those airport security scanners. gregg actually prefers them. he likes to just stand there for a little bit longer. they can create revealing
majority of this money was spent by george w. bush. now i'm going to make them pay the bill. i would turn it around on them. that's good. very strong language. we hope he sticks to it, we'll look at that in a minute. >> obama: congress has not been able to identity identify $1.2 trillion that they're happy with. they don't want to cut defense. >> cenk: that's true. hey, man i'm perfectly happy to do that. let's go to michael shure. the language is good. the frame something good. it seems strong. excuse me if i'm a little skeptical that he won't negotiate over the debt cerealing. >> you're excused for being skeptical, you're fine. you have every reason to feel that way although i think the way he handled the fiscal cliff was a departure--i think he bent over a little bit less than he has in the past in terms of going back on what he said he was going to do. he got americans to--wealthy americans to pay more in taxes. not the specific $250,000, quarter of a million. >> when we came to the so-called fiscal cliff there was a question that the american people had to resolve or the politicians
, and he's a former speech writer for george w. bush that everyone denounced it. one person under the republican leadership, the shame is they're doing this in the silence of real leadership being shown by those republicans that would say wait a minute, some things are above and beyond what is decent. >> i think scarborough said it wrong. >> but scarborough is not a leader in the party. sc scarborough has gone out there and shown some courage. >> i hope some moderate republicans like him, i mean, law enforcement, gun owners, moderate republicans, other folks who, you know, really are putting people first, i think we are the overwhelming majority. but we've got to keep our eye on the ball. just like you say all of the time, rev. you cannot go sleep on these people. as soon as you do, they're going to push their agenda. >> and it's a way, way out -- way, way out agenda. any time you have keith ellison and al sharpton praising joe scarborough, you know how far they've gone. congressman, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, reverend. >> coming up, the house republicans are packing
guarantee you that had anybody invoked the daughters of president george w. bush in a similar ad attacking him, folks on the right would be just as upset. it makes no sense at all. >> i'm sure you're right about that. rollland, what about the fact that politicians use their kids when they want to politically all the time. remember the famous picture of chelsea clinton after the monica lewinsky affair walking between her parents to the helicopter? or hold on, let me just finish. and this time before the dnc when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the couch, there it, watching michelle obama. look, they use their children for political purposes hen they want. to. >> first of all, walking with chelsea to the helicopter, they were going on vacation. so what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter or through the back door somewhere? >> it was the hand-holding and connecting them, rollland. >> okay, so what? if there was a photo and there were no hand-holding then, it's okay? seriously. that is not the same as putting an ad out
in this conversation. i can guarantee you that had anybody invoked the daughters of president george w. bush in a similar ad, folks on the right would be just as upset. >> what about the fact that politicians use kids when they want to politically all the time. remember can chelsea clip ton walking between her parents to the helicopter after the monta lewinsky affair. or this time when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the coach. they use their children for political purposes when they want to. >> walking to the helicopter, they are going on vacation. what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter? >> it was the hand holding and connecting them, roland. >> so what. if it was a photo and no hand holding, then it's okay. that is not the same as putting an add out where you are mentioning the president's daughters. it makes no sense. again, if you are the nra, you don't have to actually do that. you don't have to go that far. you would have to go to chicago and say, how many armed guards are there in chicago schools where the p
't. if he leaves as a failed president like george w. bush, then we'll get a change in party power in 2016 and this is true regardless of the identity of the democratic nominee. i think barack obama would very much like to be one of those rare presidents who passes on his success to another candidate of his own party. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and bush, and before that you have to go back to roosevelt and truman. >> michael: yeah, i agree with you, i just sort of see his relationship with biden as hilary as compelling political theater. what does it matter what happens on monday? who is paying at attention? who really cares? and it is too much? >> i don't think it is too much. everyone is paying at attention. this is our one great national. we have this symbol of this peaceful transfer of power, and the celebration of our democracy when all americans can come together at least for one day, put aside all of the partisan ranker and divisions and celebrate more than 200 years now of table democracy in america. >> i don't know if it is one day
the construction had largely been put on hold following u.s. objections dating back to president george w. bush. but israel resumed work there last month in response to the u.n. vote recognizing palestine as a nonmember observer state. the obama administration has refused to pressure israel for building -- for a building halt, limiting its reaction to calling the e1 expansion "counterproductive." clashes also erupted in the occupied west bank tuesday at the funeral of an unarmed palestinian teen killed by israeli troops. 17-year-old samir awad was shot multiple times as he tried to walk away from israeli soldiers to the israeli separation wall that carves up the west bank. samir's brother said he was killed on his way to write a final exam at school. >> he was on his way to school because he had an exam, his last school exam. after half an hour they called and told as my brother was wounded. >> samir awad was reportedly the fourth unarmed palestinian killed by israeli forces in the occupied territories in the last four days, including a farmer shot in the hd in the gaza strip. israeli forces fi
of your daily vegetable servings in every little bottle. >>> inform 2001 george w. bush took the oath of office after a bitter legal battle that only ended when the united states supreme court, of course, ordered the state of florida to stop counting ballots. well, the newly sworn president made reference to that struggle and tipped his hat to his opponent, vice president al gore. >> the peaceful transfer of authority is rare in history yet common in our country. with a 1i6r78 oath we affirm old traditions and make new beginnings. as i begin, i thank president clinton for his service to our nation. [ applause ] and i think vice president gore for a contest conducted with spirit and ended with grace. [ applause ] >> you know, he seemed to be speaking english as a second language there, didn't he? not everyone was as graceful as gore and thousands of protesters demonstrated against the new president. some egging his lem steen during the inaugural parade. we'll be right back. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in
this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
♪] >> oh, no! >> ahhhhh! >> it is the end of the world. >> stephanie: i think i saw, karl, george w bush did about 300 executive orders the president has done about 140, something like that. >> yeah. i would point out that the president would have done anything on this. they would have played right into the nra membership retention themes which are basically fear and paranoia. >> stephanie: right. >> the notion that -- the only reason that any of the things that we mentioned are scary is if you are convinced that the government is going to come get you. >> stephanie: exactly. >> but otherwise what do we expect? >> stephanie: right. and by the way another fyi, george w. bush also called for an assault weapon's ban. >> in the first four years of his administration president obama did more to expand handgun ownership. these are normal rational things and you have nothing to fear. >> yes, but he's black. >> stephanie: all right. ollie north on nra news radio. >> it is now going to be done by executive action. >> shocking! >> that's contrary to my understanding of what the
. george w. bush got 62 million votes in the 2004 election and conservatives said he had a mandate. barack obama got 62 million votes in the two -- 2012 election, and conservatives started a secessionist movement. but the obama campaign took it to them and made a difference in the end. they helped create a new electorate, a coalition of concerned and they turned it out on election day. our two political parties are separate and not equal. the percentage of republicans who are white has remained fairly steady since 2000 at about 87%. the percentage of democrats who are white in contrast has dropped from 64% in 2000 to 55% now. independents have gone from 79% to 67% white since 2000. the depth of republican dependence on white voters explains a lot about the recent election. not least about its outcome. republican efforts to suppress minority voters back fired big time. [applause] in florida alone, 266,000 more hispanics voted than in 2008. similarly in ohio, 209,000 more blacks voted than in 2008. overall, while romney received 59% of the white vote, all hot -- obama -- omaha? obama got 93%
. george w. bush, when he was signing no child left behind did that in front of a school of children in ohio. you've even got ben quayle, the former congressman from arizona got into some trouble when he sent out a campaign flier with two children on it that looked like they were his daughters but it turned out he doesn't have any kids and they were his brother's children. >> bill: lindsey graham used his sister's kids as props. that's different. >> children, there's no precedent there saying children are completely off-limits in politics. i think the question here is a lot of times they've been brought forward to these kind of presidential conferences after a policy agenda item has been achieved. this time the white house is moving forward with them in order to try to persuade americans to change their minds on this issue. i think that's where there was a little bit of disagreement here on the conservative side. >> bill: but they'll bitch about anything that obama does. as far as i'm concerned this whole national attention this focus and this demand for action really was triggered -
. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of spefblg weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distinguishes what president obama did today is the breath of policy changes that he enacted. and, yes, on some access to
